I would give this book a 5 star, but there were a few problems that kept me from it. However, none of these problems were show stoppers.
Chapters I offers a clear and easy to read overview of Joomla and VirtueMart. The chapters offer an overview of extensions to both basic Joomla and VirtueMart that increase the flexibility of the two tools. A discussion of alternatives to VirtueMart and their compatibility with Joomla is touched lightly.
Chapter II has an excellent and quick overview of Joomla installation and configuration. It offered some tips that I had not found in other books. The chapter also covered installation and basic configuration of VirtueMart. The one tip that is missing from this process is that when one uses the Joomla extension manager to install/uninstall VirtueMart, one needs to change either the php.ini file or the .htaccess file to increase the file upload size. The basic VirtueMart component is greater than the default. Also, it would have been nice if the author had covered the "manual" install, since for some reason, my change of the php.ini on my Host site does not accept the changes I made to my php.ini file.
Chapters II, IV and V take one step by step through configuration of VirtueMart. Setting up the store, the product catalog and managing orders and payment processes. Very clear.
Chapter V is a very rough overview of VirtueMart look and feel configuration. I understand that this book can't cover everything, but I feel this is the weakest chapter in the book. One of the sites that the author references for a "free sample template" has now converted to "the template is free, but you have to pay me for the privilege of accessing the free template." and the sample template the author refers to on the VirtueMart site is no longer there. These are not faults of the author, but made the experience of setting up a new template a very frustrating experience.
Chapter VII covers promotions on your site. Very Clear.
Chapter VIII covers localization and internationalization of your site. I have not read it yet and cannot comment on it.
The rest of the book talks about extending VirtueMart's functionality and Maintaining the site and what tools are available to do so. These chapters are clear and were very helpful in understanding what will be required to keep the site secure. Again, these areas are not meant to be a detailed look, but guides the reader to other areas of investigation.
Overall, I think this is an excellent book. The writing style is clear and easy to read. There is not a lot of extraneous verbage so many books use to fill up pages and pages. The one think I would like to see (but it is not necessary) is a check list for the process of setting up a VirtueMart site. If one is developing eCommerce sites for others, one will be doing this over and over again. Maybe in a future edition a Check List could be provided.
Thanks to the author for a very good job.
Honestly, this book is more of a rough guide to Virtue Mart than a step-by-step instruction manual. In order to be really in-depth like some people might be looking for, I imagine the book would have to be several thousand pages long.
What you WILL get is very well written insights into how the different components of Virtue Mart work, and the book is very helpful for determining and achieving different project goals. I used the book to help me evaluate gateway / merchant modules, and I'll likely look in the book when I configure shipping modules over the next weeks and months.
The fun part of open-source project development is you can resource user-generated help through the Virtue Mart forums and google searches to get over hurdles. However, there is something ultimately more satisfying and useful about a well written book that no PDF file or website can match. Mr. Sarkar's book is an excellent companion reference as you "enter the Matrix" of Joomla / Virtue Mart development, and I commend him on his talent and commitment.
Thanks for keeping it available.
